When organizations understand the reality of failure (six failure patterns) and adopt the principles of reliability, maintenance programs improve and "feel-good" or "recreational" maintenance is eliminated. Criticality analysis warrants the determination of which assets need reliability efforts undertaken but maintenance task and frequencies are not determined by criticality. Criticality is often used incorrectly to determine how often maintenance is performed.
"We do maintenance more often because the equipment is critical".
The six failure patterns and failure characteristics determine the type and frequency of maintenance - not equipment criticality.
